Hi all,

In a fit of god-knows-what, I've closed my Facebook account, thus leaving the A2 Enthusiasts group there. I'm returning to Google+ in hopes of a better social media experience. I know it's not as active here, but how many "saw this on eBay - not my ad" posts can one person stomach a day? I'm also following the comp.sys.apple2 group as well. Not that I'm any big fan of Google, but I'm hoping for something different here.

BTW, my departure from FB was more against FB than the A2 E group. It and the RCR Podcast group were really the only reasons I would go to FB. I'll miss some of the people there. But you know, life changes our priorities. I know a lot of those folks also come here.

Anyway, just waving hello
Cz

I'm partecipating to the Retrochallenge 2016/10 and i would like to go farther, so after i have bought an HP 35s calculator i was inspired by RPN reverse polish notation of this calculator, so i started programming and in less or more 1 hour i made this:

5 SPEED = 150
6 INVERSE
10 PRINT "APPLE ][ RPN SIMPLE CALCULATOR BY MATTEO TREVISAN"
20 HOME
30 PRINT "INSERT YOUR NUMBERS.... PLEASE"
40 PRINT "NUMBER ONE":INPUT A
50 PRINT"NUMBER TWO":INPUT B
60 PRINT "DO YOU WANT TO ADD,SUBTRACT,DIVIDE, MULTIPLY": INPUT A$
70 IF A$ = "ADD" THEN GOTO 110
80 IF A$ = "SUBTRACT" THEN GOTO 170
90 IF A$ = "DIVIDE" THEN GOTO 230
100 IF A$ = "MULTIPLY" THEN GOTO 280
110 C = A+B
160 PRINT "THE ADDITION IS "; C
161 FOR K = 1 TO 5000
162 NEXT K
165 GOTO 10
170 D = A-B
180 PRINT "THE SUBTRACTION IS "; D
190 FOR K = 1 TO 5000
200 NEXT K
210 GOTO 10
230 E = A/B
240 PRINT "THE DIVISION IS "; E
250 FOR K = 1 TO 5000
260 NEXT K
270 GOTO 10
280 F = A*B
290 PRINT "THE MULTIPLY IS "; F
300 FOR K = 1 TO 5000
310 NEXT K
320 GOTO 10
330 END

I'm trying to track down a user's manual for the AST Multi I/O card. It is supposed to provide parallel and serial ports, as well as a system clock for the Apple II. I managed to locate a utilities disk image for the card on Asimov but I have been unable to find any written documentation. It has a series of jumpers and DIP switches that, without some functional understanding, are useless. Any help is appreciated. Picture below.

I dusted off my IIGS and booted it up from my HDD. It seemed to be running fine but after installing the Marinetti TCP/IP stack, it locks up on boot. I cannot seem to remember the keyboard sequence to boot without NDAs, CDAs, Inits, etc. Does anyone recall how to do that?

Does Lode Runner stand the test of time? Will gamers playing it for the first time in 2016 enjoy it as much as we did when it debuted on the Apple II? Tune into the New Game Plus podcast to find out!
